Better late than never, I thought I'd update with my weekend at Sunnycon back in July of this year.
I had an amazing weekend and definitely one of the best Sunnycon's I've attended.
What made the weekend even better was the fact my sister was with me. She traveled up the night before and we went by train up to Newcastle together.
after arriving VERY late to the venue, we finally got the table setup.
We had some ceiling issues as they were a lot lower compared to the massive halls I'm used to, so we had to improvise a lot with the grid squares for displaying.
Never the less, we got there eventually.
The great thing about Sunnycon was I was able to have some of my headdresses on the table too. Normally MCM events only allow art so it was nice being able to show off some of my other items.
We stayed with some friends in Gateshead, which saved on costs massively and it was so nice to hang out with them. We spent all night playing trad games and watching tv :D
The next day we traveled over to the venue and we were ready for day 2,
We both dressed mermaidy; I was in pastels whilst Steph rocked an amazing Koi themed outfit, Both the headdresses I made.
Saturday was super busy, possibly the busiest I've ever been on a Sunnycon saturday. Steph kept me fed and hydrated whilst I furiously drew Overwatch after Overwatch commission hahaa!
There was also free wifi at the event so we were constantly being entertained when we had a quiet moment. I think Genji was the hardest out of all of my commissions, he's so detaily :P
Saturday night we went for food at TGIs (standard) and met up with more friends for cocktails! After a day like Saturday we really needed a drink lol
We found an amazing cocktail bar that was Sci-Fi themed and allowed you to draw on the tables - wot?! and had a Darth Vader disco ball?? it was awesome.
We thought Sunday would be quieter and whilst it kind of was, I was still swamped with Overwatch commissions |D I pretty much sold out of all of my Mercy prints and was none stop drawing.
Saw some amazing cosplays over the weekend, unfortunately I couldn't snap all of them, so here's a few of the ones I did get.
Sadly it had to come to an end and my sister traveled back with me to Manchester to stay the night before traveling home the next day,
We had an incredible weekend and I cannot wait to do it all again next year - which I have ALREADY booked my table for huzzah! Having my sister with me definitely made all the difference, its so nice to have someone with you when your behind a table all weekend.
My next event was MCM Scotland Comic Con...
